Well, even if summer’s warmth hasn’t quite started to wane, I can practically smell the freshly sharpened pencils ringing in a new year. Yep — I count the start of the year with the academic calendar (iykyk). There’s just something about blank notebooks and new shoes that puts me in the mood for a fresh start.
Especially new shoes.
The Best Fall Boots, Sneakers & Sandals At Rack Room: Back-To-School Refresh
Whether you’re jumping on back-to-school deals for yourself or setting up your little scholars for a successful year, we found soooo many good options from Rack Room Shoes to stride confidently in. Better yet, many of of our top picks from brands we know and love are part of Rack Room’s Back-To-School promo: Take $15 off orders $99+ with code CV15, ends 8/30 (exclusions apply).
We’ve noted the sneakers, sandals and boots that are included in the sale in the captions below.
Happy shoe shopping!
1. Tried-&-True Sneakers
As you probably noticed, sneakers are the backbone of many of our everyday, tried-and-true outfit formulas. These checkered Vans (on promo) go with everything, as proven by Shana who sports hers with both jeans and dresses. These retro Tretorn sneakers (on promo) are just as versatile to dress up or down too. And although these neutral New Balance sneaks aren’t part of Rack Room’s deal, they’re under $100, and I’m smitten.

2. Chic & Walkable Sandals
Sun’s out, sandals on. These Reef flip-flops (one of S’ faves, on promo) are classic, but if you’re looking for something a little dressier, we’re all aboard team minimalist strappy sandals (on promo). Ooh, and if you’re shoe-shopping for something to freshen up office outfits, a pop of silver (also on promo) is our favorite trick.

3. Stylish But Still Comfortable Boots
Laura said “yes” to these Western-inspired boots (on promo) last season and found them to be cute, cushioned (read: super-walkable), and easy to style with black jeans. These Dolce Vita Chelsea boots also hit the mark (on promo), and how cool are these Sorel sneaker-boots? The Sorels aren’t included in the promo, but if you have a more on-the-go lifestyle, they get rave reviews.

Back-To-School Kids’ Boots & Sneakers: Our Top Picks
Of course, we had to do a roundup of the best kids’ shoes. After all, it is their back-to-school season (even if I’m admittedly co-opting these deals). I’m actually envious of how cool and fun kids’ shoes have gotten lately…I’ll let this pair of Vans sneakers (on promo) and these sporty Pumas (not on promo, but under $100) for themselves.
Shop More Kids’ Sneakers
Are you jealous yet? I wish I could scoop up these New Balance sneakers in Navy (not on promo, but they’re under $70) for myself. Your kiddo can’t go wrong with the more classic Vans (on promo) or a pair of slip-ons for the little who’s anti-laces, either.
Shop More Kids’ Boots
What’s cuter than a little kid in sporty sneaks? A little kid in adorable rain boots (on promo). Or in these cute Western boots (on promo). Or in a pair of fuzzy slipper boots (also on promo). I mean…you get it.
